I didn't even understand the lyrics until Pete quoted them...I liked the tune but it doesn't make me homophobe,does it...Thanks for enlightening me, I won't be searching for it

I love 'Relax' !! Got their few LP's and 12" :)
P.S. regarding the banned tune - if the lyrics were saying about murdering (white) straight people I would feel offended for sure

Will it end where all music that feature unlicensed samples will be banned for sale? If we want to get to the logical legal conclusion..

That's a very good point as technically the fraud squad, FBI, etc. could already seize the lot and destroy it.

It wouldn't surprise me if it ended up that way (banned from Discogs) TBH, it'll just take a few influential social justice warriors to kick off.

I wouldn't be surprised if their banning of certain records was based on some sort of complaints system. X amount of people complain, they ban it.

90s ragga is full of homophobia, Jamaica is a deeply Christian place and they don't really accept homosexuals.
